Description

    1869 Seated Quarter, PR67
    Among the Finest Graded, Ex: Kaufman

    1869 25C PR67 NGC. CAC. Briggs 2-B. Ex: Kaufman. Richly toned in blue and antique-copper shades, the surfaces are uniformly reflective without a troublesome blemish to report. A lamp is needed to discern cobalt-blue undertones, but the needle-sharp proof strike is immediately apparent. The lightest suggestion of red patination occurs along the lower reverse denticles.

    Variety: Briggs 2-B. Strong die doubling is noted throughout the obverse.

    Population Data (9/15): NGC reports three submitted in PR67 (one in PR67 ) and none finer, while the finest at PCGS are five in PR66.

    Heritage Commentary: Like the other P-mint Motto Seated quarters from the 1860s, the 1869 was produced in limited numbers as a business strike (in this case, only 16,000 pieces). Consequently, high-quality date collectors are often forced to call upon exceptionally well-preserved proofs to represent this issue. This Superb Gem proof is a perfect candidate.

    Provenance: Philip Kaufman Collection / Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2003), lot 6659.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 29SH, PCGS# 5568)

    Weight: 6.22 grams
